When we, like the psalmist, cry out in questions to God, there is an answer. The psalmist wonders of God’s faithfulness, His provision, and even His memory of the psalmist. But, like any difficult time, a transition comes.
“And I said, ‘This is my anguish; but I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High.'” –verse 10
But I will remember…like the stones in the middle of the river that He parted, like the altar built on the other side, like the rainbow in the sky, like the Holy Spirit our comforter, the Lord has done mighty things. And His mightiness does not prevent us from asking the hard questions. He then gently leads us to remember Him.
“I will remember the works of the Lord; surely I will remember Your wonders of old. I will meditate on all Your work, and talk of Your deeds. Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary; who is so great a God as our God?” –verses 11-13
Remember His works. Remember His works in your life. Ask Him your questions, then remember His works.
